Rihanna Releases 4/20 Themed Track ‘James Joint’ [LISTEN]
Rihanna celebrated 4/20 in a way totally beneficial to fans: She released yet another track off her upcoming studio album. If you're wondering how, exactly, the act of releasing a new song has anything to do with 4/20 you can calm down, because we're about to connect the dots for you. The song is called "James Joint" and Rihanna directly references smoking weed via the lyrics. She also literally wrote on her website that the song was "in celebration" of the weed-centric holiday, so there you go.
"James Joint" isn't exactly a full-length song. It's meant to act as an interlude between tracks on the album, kind of like a musical transition from one song to the next. The track itself has a super dreamy sound, with lyrics like, "I'd rather be smoking weed whenever we breathe / Every time you kiss me / Don't say that you miss me / Just come get me / Don't know why / Just know I want to / Don't know why / Just know I want you."
Rihanna is reportedly a huge fan of the song, telling V Magazine that it's one of her favorites. She said (quote via the Huffington Post), "Dude, I’m in love with my interludes. This one called ‘James Joint' is on constant repeat."
"James Joint" marks the fourth song to be released from her upcoming, eighth studio album, following the Kanye West, Paul McCartney collaboration of "FourFiveSeconds," the attitude-infused "Bitch Better Have My Money" and the politically charged "American Oxygen." There's no word yet as to when Rihanna's next album will be released.
